Introduction of coding concepts and fundamentals using Google Chrome DevTools.

[PLANNING]

Planning Your Page: create a structure for your ‘About Me’ page

Before you build, it’s important to know what you want to build and how your elements relate. We’ll workshop and collaborate on a basic wireframe, which you will work from during the second session to build your page.

[BUILD]

We will use a template with a variety of customizable components to build your ‘About Me’ page. You’ll be implementing basic coding principles and lightly styling your page to get it the look and feel you desire.

Code & Coffee @ Grandview Grind

Details

Are you a beginner coder who wants to learn more, but you don’t want to do it all on your own? Grab a cup of coffee (or tea or a smoothie) and work alongside others who are in the same position as you. This is a great opportunity to prepare for a GDI class, continue building on what you’ve already learned, or to simply socialize with people who share your interest in learning to code!

The meeting time is flexible. Come when you can and leave when you like. We are usually at Grandview Grind until 8:30ish.

Intermediate and advanced folks are welcome to join as well!! Please come and share your knowledge!

*If you need help with a specific coding problem, please leave a comment below.

**If you can help with problems/questions related to specific coding language(s), please let us know in the comments.

Dinner: You are welcome to bring something, if you like. Local Cantina and Aladdin’s are right next door. If you would like coffee, tea, or baked goodies, please support our generous host, Grandview Grind, with your purchase. No purchase necessary to attend!

Girl Develop It welcomes all genders and identities to our events.

Monthly #learntocode Meetup @ Baker Electric Building
Jul 12 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Details

Dip your toes into programming at Tech Elevator’s learn to code Meetup. Each month we’ll take a look at simple programming concepts that will be fun, informative, and give you a glimpse into the world of computer programming.

JULY MONTHLY TOPIC

A little HTML, a bit of CSS animation, and some JavaScript is all you need to build your very own Whack-a-Mole game. Why hunt down the nearest arcade, or carnival midway, when you can play from the comfort of your home, and for FREE? We’ll look into CSS transitions and animation, the importance of randomness in games, and take a peek at SVG graphics. Get your digital mallets ready!

Be sure to bring your laptop computer and install the Chrome or Firefox Browser.

AGENDA
5p – Doors open
5:30p – Presentation begins

IF YOU’RE NEW

Start with the basics of HTML. Learn how web pages work and the language used to create them.

EXERCISE: create a simple web page from scratch that looks like our example web page below. We’ll spend our time at the Meetup helping you create web pages and learning how browsers use HTML to show what we’ve made.

Take a look at the following resources before the Meetup:
